The goal of the Adding Content to Contact project is to assess the barriers and opportunities for adopting and implementing cost-effective interventions for antenatal and postnatal care.Among the findings, the researchers cite the need to streamline antenatal care (ANC) guidelines as well as providers’ responsibility to deliver culturally sensitive ANC. The research also identifies successes and challenges of ANC and postnatal care (PNC) and offers recommendations for ensuring uptake of services in low-resource settings. Finally, the research discusses both the barriers to and key elements of integrated antenatal care services.Click below to access the publications:Antenatal and postnatal care: A review of innovative models for improving availability, accessibility, acceptability and quality of services in low-resource settingsAntenatal care for healthy pregnant women: A mapping of interventions from existing guidelines to inform the development of new WHO guidance on antenatal careWhat matters to women: A systematic scoping review to identify the processes and outcomes of antenatal care provision that are important to healthy pregnant womenBarriers and enablers to integrating maternal and child health services to antenatal care in low- and middle-income countriesThe research also garnered highlights from Dr. Michael Marsh, BJOG Deputy Editor-in-Chief, as well as Nynke van den Broek, one of BJOG’s Scientific Editors:Read the Editor’s Choice commentaryListen to the Editor’s Choice commentary Read the mini commentaryShare this:last_img
